The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski

The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski
Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in March 2016
The Winner's Trilogy #3

"War has begun. Arin is in the thick of it with untrustworthy new allies and the empire as his enemy. Though he has convinced himself that he no longer loves Kestrel, Arin hasn’t forgotten her, or how she became exactly the kind of person he has always despised. She cared more for the empire than she did for the lives of innocent people—and certainly more than she did for him.

At least, that’s what he thinks.

In the frozen north, Kestrel is a prisoner in a brutal work camp. As she searches desperately for a way to escape, she wishes Arin could know what she sacrificed for him. She wishes she could make the empire pay for what they’ve done to her.

But no one gets what they want just by wishing.

As the war intensifies, both Kestrel and Arin discover that the world is changing. The East is pitted against the West, and they are caught in between. With so much to lose, can anybody really win?" -- From Goodreads

Will you like it?
This book was a great conclusion to this series.  Arin and Kestrel struggled a lot throughout the entire book.  She struggled with her demons from camp; he struggled to let Kestrel take an active role in the war.  I have always loved this series because it wasn't just about war.  The series was about the characters to happened to be involved in a war.  It had great character development throughout.

Disclosure: I borrowed a copy of this book from my local library.
